Make a Gift

For the children of Opportunity School, a gift of any size helps to support their learning and development. We believe that every family wants what's best for their child but often does not know how or have the resources to provide it. Because of your support, Opportunity School can help equip children and their families for school and life success! 

Financial gifts, gifts of time, in-kind gifts, and help through special events are needed throughout the year. There are many ways to support Opportunity School with your time, talent, and treasure. Here are just a few. 

Financial Gifts – In order to maintain our commitment high quality education experiences for our students, we must annually meet out operating needs. Approximately 50 percent of budgeted funds are provided by community donations. Donations can be made on a schedule that works for your budget whether that's yearly or a smaller gift monthly.

Annual and Year-End Campaigns – Each year, we ask for support from the Amarillo community with a Spring Appeal and Year-End campaigns. This also gives us the opportunity to update donors about the school. You can also amplify your gift through The Panhandle Gives! 

Gifts of time – Share your talents as office and library volunteers, guest readers, teacher appreciation volunteers or help with events at the school. Everything from gardeners to handy men and women can contribute their talents to special projects around the school.
